Out To Lunch

Thursdays at 1:00 p.m. and Fridays at 6:30 p.m.

When you tune in to Out to Lunch, you'll find economist and Tulane finance professor Peter Ricchiuti conducting business New Orleans style: over lunch at Commander's Palace restaurant.

Each week Peter invites guests from the new world of the New Orleans business renaissance to join him. The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and Inc. magazine have all named New Orleans the best city in the U.S. to be an entrepreneur, and Out to Lunch is at the forefront of the new New Orleans.
